Baby showers are all about having fun, so here are some crafting ideas to make your baby shower a memorable one:
Bun in the Oven Game
Hot glue gun with glue
Small safety pins
2 pieces of felt
Cut the dress shape out of felt. Hot glue the sides of the dress together. Stuff the dress with 1-2 cotton balls. Seal the bottom of the dress with a dot of hot glue in the middle. Glue a bow onto the dress for embellishment. Apply the safety pin to the back so the guests can wear them. Put the button in one of the dresses for the winner to find. At the shower, present each guest with their pregnant mommy pin. At the end of the shower, the guests open their dresses and whoever has the “bun in the oven” is the winner.
Washcloth Baby Bouquet
6-12 baby washcloths
Double-sided sticky tape
A bundle of silk flowers, must have as many flowers as washcloths
To make your roses, lay the washcloth on a flat surface in front of you and fold it half. Fold the washcloth in half again so that it is long and skinny (horizontal.) Roll the wash cloth from one end to the other at a bit of an angle to achieve the rose petal look. Put some double-sided sticky tape to hold the rose in place as you roll the bottom edges upward to hold it together. Repeat these steps on your remaining washcloths. Remove all of the flower “heads” from the stems of your arrangement. Slide the stems up into the hole on the bottom of your washcloth roses. Add all of your roses to the bouquet and then put it in the vase for display. Pretty and practical!
Lots of diapers (could use one size for each tier of the cake if you want.)
Thin rubber bands
Silk flowers, rubber ducks, rattles, or other baby toys for embellishments
To make your cake, roll each of the diapers into a tight roll, from top to bottom. Secure the roll in the middle with a rubber band. Repeat until all diapers are rolled up and secured. Arrange the diaper rolls in a circle or square for your first tier. Then secure the tier with the ribbon. Repeat these steps on all tiers, making each tier smaller than the last. Finally, decorate the “cake” with your choice of embellishments.
